Browser Choice

    I used to know but forget... Can someone tell me where Windows stores newly
    installed updates?

    I want to uninstall the damned browser choice notice now being presented
    every time I boot.

    I just wish that unelected, corrupt bunch of crooks in the EU Commission
    would butt out. It was they who forced Microsoft to punish us this way.
    Although it would also have been sensible for Microsoft to add a 'Do Not
    Show Again' button.

    TIA

    So CHOICE is bad? Maybe you should live in a dictatorship.

    Hi,
    I'm guessing, because I don't have this update installed, but try disabling
    the executable from Start> Run> (type in) msconfig> Startup> uncheck
    browserchoice.exe (or similar name) Restart. If you see a "system
    configuration" nag at each startup, check the "Don't show this again" box.

    Hope this helps,

    I don't know that it can be uninstalled. Have you tried making your choice
    of Browser from the "Browser Choice" screen?

    Thanks Donald, maybe that will work. I have two browsers running and I'm
    quite happy with them but I guess taking a third won't hurt, tho' why the
    hell we're made to do this is beyond me.

    You come over like the prat called Gordon I had reason to educate some time

    someone. Or maybe it would be better if you saw a doctor and got yourself
    sorted.

    Good suggestion, Don but can't see it there. It's KB976002 which only in
    Europe presents a notice every time you boot offering multiple choices of
    browser. Trouble is, you can't stop it nor can you uninstall it as it's
    locked in. I'll use a Restore point if I can't disable it. The trouble then
    is, as there were several updates, they will all go. Then a 'Check for
    updates and leave it off. Just the hassle p****s me off!

    Thanks. Found that out the hard way.... Does anyone know why Microsoft chose
    to lock this useless device into our computers. I know they had to show it,
    but why forever?

    Another bad mannered prat...! Look at my original post... I cursed the arse
    of the EU Commission, so it's clear I know who's responsible for the
    advertisement. But why lock it in and why not a 'Do not show this message
    again' choice?

    If you don't know, you don't need to make a comment...! If you want to make
    a comment, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT! And yes I'm shouting because you're
    f*****g dense!

    I have automatic updates off and check MS Update manually. I carefully

    Thank you, Jean. I also have installing set to manual and I wish I had done
    the same as you and ignored it. As it is I have done a System Restore which
    got rid of it. Now it is the only one sitting in "Windows Update".

    (Sorry aboout the rude elements in the thread... Not my usual style in front

    Hide it by clicking the update icon and UNchecking the box next to it.
    Click OK, then in the next window that opens put a check in the box next
    to " Do not offer me this (these) update(s) again or I'll kill
    you " or some similar verbiage to that effect. <w>

    Ed, I know how you feel!! I've just posted venting my spleen about the same
    thing. lol
    Pity there arenot more helpful peeps out there!
    I've found a way to disable it: -
    Go to "Run" type "msconfig" select the startup tab and look for Microsoft
    entries.
    Hover your pointer over each of them you find in the "Command" column and it
    will show a more helpfull label.
    Disable the "Browser Choice" one ....and it's gone, or so I've found!

    I think the correct text is "Do not offer me this update again or I'll
    kill you *twice*"

    Just my way of saying your post helped make my day...
